*Charges Igbo Leaders To Take Steps To Check These Sinister Plots:

Leading Civil rights advocacy group-HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA) has raised alarm that there are credible evidence of well funded and well oiled plots by some IGBOPHOBIC FORCES in both the political, media and civil society spaces to engineer genocidal killings of Igbos to stop one of them from getting the nod to become the Presidential Candidate of any of the two dominant parties- APC and PDP in the 2023 polls.

HURIWA has therefore asked Igbo leaders including the global leaders of OHANAEZE NDIGBO, the WORLD COUNCIL OF IGBOS, the governors of the Igbo speaking States, elected and appointed political stakeholders, Religious, Traditional and Civil rights advocacy groups in the South East of Nigeria to take immediate, comprehensive, and proactive measures to stem the tides just as the Rights group said those championing the anti Igbo campaigns are already funded by one of the leading aspirants for the Presidency who is considered influential in the South West of Nigeria.

HURIWA accused these Ethnic irredentists masquerading as politicians and religious leaders of working to generate enough hatreds that could spark off ethnic genocide against Igbos.

HURIWA warned that should Igbo leaders sit back, looking forlorn and laid back and refused to smell the coffee and analytically understudy the trends of anti Igbo sentiments in both the popular media and the social media of mass communications, then the apostles of Genocide who hate Igbos passionately and are already deploying their pulpits and traditional stools and their media outlets to promote anti Igbo sentiments thereby stoking up the embers of ethnic hatred against the Igbo speaking Nigerians who are settled in every part of Nigeria, then these agents may have their way. HURIWA has called for these apostles of hate speech to be investigated.

HURIWA said the leaders of Igbo land must approach the President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly to table the media published diatribes and hate speeches against the Igbos which are deliberately put out there in the media to provide signals for those armed non State actors that hate Igbo to stage well Coordinated genocidal attacks against Igbo interests and individuals residing in all parts of Nigeria because all that haters of any Ethnic groups need is to be fed with anti Igbo sentiments in the media.

HURIWA stated that since the 2019 polls that Senator Oluremi Tinubu openly canvassed hate speeches directed at the Igbos resident in Lagos over her perceived fear that the large majority of Igbos may vote for PDP, the anti Igbo sentiments have taken a more sinister and deadly dimension since her husband said his LIFE TIME AMBITION IS TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA, other foot soldiers have upped the ante if their anti Igbo rhetorics.

The Rights group recalled the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, declaring that he can not trust any Southeaster to be the President of Nigeria

His stand is coming at a time the South-East is demanding for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction, on the basis of equity.

He noted that the sit-at-home order issued by the members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) was not only inimical to their survival but also to the growth of the nation.

Oba Abdulrosheed also pointedly stated thus: “You can’t be a leader on sectional interest. With such unsophisticated, primitive and uncivilized thinking, no Nigerian from other zones will vote a south easterner as their President.”

HURIWA then recalled that Atiku Abubakar’s main man who is the Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, Chief Raymond Dokpesi says the separatist activities of Nnamdi Kanu, detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) would jeopardise the chances of the South-East region to produce the president of Nigeria in 2023.

In a statement recently Dokpesi stressed that he is a firm believer in a united, indivisible Nigeria.

HURIWA also accused one Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministries of spreading hate speeches against Igbos when he said erroneously Nigerians do not trust Igbos because they don’t support themselves.

The self acclaimed cleric, while preaching in his church, said Igbos tear themselves down at any given opportunity. Citing reference of how Igbos have fought against each other, Suleman said an Igbo Senate President, Evan Enwerem was removed by another Igbo man, Chuba Okadigbo.

HURIWA described Suleiman as a closet hater of Igbos who has now started deploying his so called Church to instigate hatred and hate crimes against Igbos that may result in genocide just as the Rights group called on the leaders of the South-East to take these agents of IGBO PHOBIA up to stop any of their evil intentions from happening against Igbos before the 2023 General elections.
